The objective of the Fellow Programme in Management (FPM), a Doctoral level programme of NIFM Faridabad, is to develop scholars for distinguished careers in teaching, training, research, and consultancy in management. The FPM is the highest academic qualification any one can earn. It requires extended study and intense intellectual effort. Therefore, one needs high level of commitment in order to successfully complete the programme. The programme requires successful completion of two things – one must master a specific subject completely, and one must extend the body of knowledge about that subject. Accordingly, the programme consists of two phases. The first phase of the programme consists of coursework involving Fellow programme level courses followed by a comprehensive qualifying examination. The second phase of the programme consists of Thesis work involving preparation of a Thesis proposal, conducting research stated in the proposal, Thesis development and its examination.
